In 1976, Gene Daniels began a career in radio by hosting his own radio program, featuring music from the 50's and 60's. During this time he was music director for the radio station selecting new music that would arrive at the station for air play. Many times he enjoyed the opportunity to meet his listerners during remote broadcasts done by the radio station at various public locations.
As master of ceremonies, Gene Daniels enjoyed working with such groups as: the Shirells, the Drifters, Danny and the Juniors, the Platters, and others. Through radio he learned to select music, interact with the public and develop the voice necessary to become a master of ceremonies.
Using the experience Gene Daniels learned in radio, plus owning his own personal library of music, he decided in 1976 to become a mobile disc-jockey entertaining the public at many of the area's dance parties, then known as record hops. As time went on, his disc-jockey service became very popular and a whole new era of entertaining at local banquet facilities was taking place, as disc-jockeys were quickly replacing bands.
For over 30 years, Gene Daniels Disc-Jockey Service has enjoyed performing for many weddings, anniversaries, Banquets, bridal showers, retirement parties, bridal showers, banquets, political gatherings, corporate outings, and numerous events, large and small. Gene Daniels is highly regarded as one of the area's most requested disc-jockey services and recommended by many banquet facilities.
Over the years, many who have worked in banquet facilities have selected Gene's disc-jockey service for their own personnel functions. They compliment him on his ability to handle an entire event from introductions to audience participation, plus his knowledge of music from the Big Band era to today's Top Forty. He considers himself very fortunate to be chosen by those who are employed by banquet facilities knowing on many ocassions they have the opportunity to see other disc-jockey services and make the Gene Daniels Disc-Jockey Service their first choice when selecting music for their very special ocassion.
During his 30-plus years of entertaining, Gene has had the pleasure of being selected for the music for the weddings of three daughters in the same family. He also enjoys repeat business from many companies who re-book his service immediately following their annual holiday parties and summer corporate outings. Music has been such an enjoyable part of Gene's life from radio to the public and it shows in his performance when you see the Gene Daniels DJ Service.
